We find out a bit more about Alexia's preternatural state and who her father was. They travel to Egypt and there are muggings, kidnappings, and crazy old vampires out to kill everyone. It's fun and funny, and even a bit tender in spots.
The first half was a bit slow but overall the ending made up for it. It ends well and that makes me happy. And they lived happilish everish after.
I have happy news that Gail Carriger is continuing her series but in a new direction with Lady and Lord Maccon's child Prudence. Looks like we'll expect the first book in Fall of 2013 or early 2014. Yeah! More Parasol Protectorate fun!!!!!
